Pomfrets are suitable for steaming but make sure you use fresh ones. Another point to remember is do not overcook or steam the fish too long otherwise the fish will be chewy. You need to test your steamer to get the perfect timing. I used Osimo steamer which always guarantee my fish is cooked within 10 minutes.
1 large Pomfret or your preferred fish
1 Kasturi Lime
1 inch Ginger - pound & squeeze juice
1 Lemon Grass - sliced
1 Ginger Bud - sliced thinly
3 Bird-eye Chillies - sliced or knocked slightly
1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 tbsp Nampla / Fish sauce
1 tsp Cornflour - add with few tbsp water
1 piece soft Taufu - cubed (I did not put in the above)
2 Kaffir Lime leaves - sliced finely
Corriander leaves & Spring Onion - chopped
Salt & Pepper
1. Rub fish with salt & pepper.
Squeeze ginger and lime juice on it and rub evenly.
2. Place the fish in a container.
Put the rest of ingredients on it.
Add a bit of water to the amount of your preference. I usually put about a cup of water as my children love it soupy.
3. Steam for 10 minutes or until the fish is just cooked.
Tip: Make sure the water is rapidly boiling before steaming.
Serve immediately with white rice.
